If you look at movie studio stills from the "Golden Age" of Hollywood; you know, the black and white photographs of the "Titans" of film, chances are they'll be holding a martini or smoking a cigarette or checking their watch as if they're about to catch a train. Whatever their activity, if you look CLOSELY at their wrist, they'll be wearing a stunning Deco-era timepiece.
The Deco era had such staggering class it will never, ever be imitated, never duplicated. The same thing can be said for the watches produced during this era of both form and function. Sadly, no matter how much money one spends on a modern watch, one can't duplicate the styling, shape or tone of a genuine vintage timepiece. New watches are like remakes of classic films: They're never as good as the originals.
Measuring an impressive 46mm by 25mm, this overwhelmingly Art Deco yellow gold-filled "Winton" by Ditisheim is as brilliant a work of wrist art as anyone could hope to display. Everything about this timepiece is fascinating, from its higher-grade Swiss movement; to its stunning case; to its immaculately restored dial and classic Breguet hands. What a look!
Condition is another attractive element of this watch. Few of this Deco timepieces survived in this condition. Today, such representative pieces usually make their way into someone's permanent collection. This watch is fitted with a wine crocodile strap.
We love our overseas buyers, but if the watch is purchased outside the U.S., we must replace the strap with a leather one.
If, by chance, you have been searching for a rare and desirable timepiece with historical significance, something to set the wearer apart from the sea of the distasteful and inept; if you wish to impress a boardroom, courtroom or clubhouse to silence with the magnitude of your savoir faire – you have found your timely vehicle.
